ADOPT A GIRAFFE

Giraffes are the tallest land animal in the world.  A male stands up to 5.5m high, and weighs nearly two tonnes.  Their legs, measuring approximately 6ft long, are taller than most humans.  

Giraffes are under threat, both in captivity and in the wild.  Wild giraffes have been extensively hunted for their meat, but today their main threat is loss of habitat.

Wild giraffes live complex lives and roam large expanses, so being confined to small enclosures can lead to extreme frustration and boredom.

Help care for a wild animal and you'll receive an exclusive adoption pack containing a soft toy, animal story, species fact sheet, certificate and glossy photo.  Plus, you'll also receive our Adopt magazine twice a year with updates on all our wildlife adoptions – perfect for animal lovers.
